I have a few pipe boots on my roof that squirrels like to munch on. I'm not sure why but it creates a lot of work for me.

enter image description here

How can I prevent this from happening again once I fix the boot? This is the second time its happened and I'm sure will continue. I was thinking barb wire around it but I'd prefer a more aesthetic solution.

    Is that a lead roof vent flashing??

Metal window screen and black spray paint.

I have squirrels that eat my resin lawn furniture. I swear they are as bright as Stephen Hawking and more destructive than chain saws.


Do not allow squirrels or any animals access to roof by eliminating trees which are less than 6 feet away.

    A bit drastic, no?
